“Most comfortable bed like home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

We stayed here 2 nights attending a family wedding. Some members of the party stayed in the main house, with 4 poster beds! My husband and I stayed in the stable block (more modern) but bright, clean and the most enormous comfortable bed I have ever slept in away from home. Food served at the reception, and for breakfast was first class. Would like to return again for a week-end break and bags the same room.

Room Tip: Depends if you prefer a 4 poster or comfort, I would go for the stable block myself.

Sorry the review is a bit late, but we had two rooms here for nearly two weeks in February . The rooms we stayed in were lovely and suited our needs, the beds were really comfy and the shower was a good temperature. The staff could not do enough to help and were all very friendly and chatty. The food was great especially at dinner time and big portions.
The grounds are really lovely especially for our dogs.
Would recommend to all.

There are not a lot of hotels around Saffron Walden and this is conveniently placed. The room in the stable block was very pleasant if unexceptional but with a large very comfortable bed. Evening meals all table d'hote - my wife's duck was rather tough and both that and my coq au vin lacked flavour. Breakfast cooked to order, very good, but limited buffet selection. Service a bit haphazard - especially at breakfast; eg requesting missing butter led to a casual tossing of some butter packs onto the table. Very friendly staff nevertheless. Not the standard of many years ago, but good value overall.

Stayed at the Crown House for a short weekend with my girlfriend, could not recommend a stay at this hotel anymore. Lovely room, great food and really helpful staff who upgraded us to a better room just because there was one available! Will definitely be staying here again in the future.

We stayed here in a groupon deal our room in the stable block was really comfy and quiet. We had dinner at the plough up the road which has amazing burgers. Breakfast in the morning was lovely with good service. Would stay here again.

Stayed in the stable rooms, clean and well furnished. The main hotel was lovely, the food served was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly and could not be more helpful, will certainly be interested in going back in the future.

We have just celebrated my mother's 90th birthday in the beautiful Georgian room at the hotel. Tina and her staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was excellent and the attention to detail with candles and fresh flowers on the tables was perfect for the occasion. We would thoroughly recommend the hotel and particularly the Georgian room for a family function.
